Hah, was it the GW in Southern NJ I believe off rt 70, not too far from Camden? I am not really too concerned with competition as I still need to learn what QUALITY items are and quit being a brandwhore. i now have like 5 pairs of shoes, none of which are my size. I thought I could pass them off here since my bro doesnt like them, but they are just sitting in my closet. Must get rid of them before the g/f comes...Realistically, stuff I'm buying is still BETTER than what I've got, so I'm slowly progressing.
Also, I'm not too particularly fond of that store, its just one I can make into being my way home from work. I just started thrifting not too long ago and am still searching for my sweet spot.
Yep, that's the one.
I've been doing this for less than a year and I'm still getting the hang of it as well (I can't imagine having to start reading this thread from the beginning now instead of the 600 pages I had to slog through in January when I started my education). Everybody always has something to learn and something to teach which is why I enjoy this thread so much. It also helps keep me motivated during my dry spells (which are frequent).
I guess what I'm trying to say is: keep at it (and what size are those shoes you speak of?)
